    Silly of me. Most likely an AMD since I've had a terrible past with Intel.

    Which one specifically, chipset is required.

    Just remember AMD chipsets are not compatible with Intel processors.

    If you have a budget such as yours, stick with the Intel and follow Dave's advice on it. The AMD chipset/processor is a good budget item but is honestly only used for serious OC''ing, and with your budget you can do better with Intel and having a stable system over a highly OC'd AMD system. And this is coming from an AMD fanboy.

    Good advice. Going with an intel.

    For $1200 you can get something pretty high end when it comes to power, not sure why you are even considering an i5.

    Was discussing it with my friend and he told me I wouldn't need the i7 since the difference is that i7 has hyper-threading and i5 doesn't.

    You want live streaming + gaming, an i7 will serve you better. If you are doing any sort of recording and encoding in the future an i7 will serve you better. A 3770/K is about $80-90 more than it's respective 3570/K but if you're doing any kind of video work (which a lot of live streamers do) that hyper-threading will come in handy. Of course it's up to you. That $80-90 could go towards a caching SSD or a larger primary SSD or to something else.

    Now that, I'll take into consideration. I've got time to see if I should buy an i7 instead of an i5. Thanks again.

    I'm not saying you should go for an i7, just have a look online and look at the areas in which the i7 excels at and see if you think you'd see yourself using the i7 to it's fullest.

    I know of that, but the only difference that I'll usually see it in is just rendering. Just depends.

    Second gen+ Hyper Threading on the i7 is a bit different. With the first generation HT actually had a small amount of negative feedback forcing the CPU to become too hot, and the switch from HT to non-HT was very noticeable. Second generation + fixed these issues, where the HT is actually turned off by default, and only kicks in when you use something (such as audio encoding, video rendering, graphics rendering, etc) that needs the extra kick. The i7 is basically an i5 with the added feature of being able to render crap much more efficiently and faster. Still worth it IMO.

    Which is why I'm still going to take my time. I've got until summer to decide all my parts.

    By then you will have new hardware to consider as well. Just remember that, the newer stuff will be intoxicating but at a much steeper price. This is why I prefer AMD. I pay an i5 price but I can set up my hardware to i7 specifications (excluding hyper threading, but with 8 cores and 32 gb of RAM I should not need to worry).

    Hell if you have enough money, take a look into Xeon processors.
